Uptown Brown’s

   May 18, 2010 4:30 pm    7

Rocking this week’s poll with 135 votes, Uptown Brown’s was the first destination of my local pizza tour.  I made my way up to East 30th and German streets with my friend Shawn.  Neither of us had ever been to Uptown’s before, so we were both pretty eager to try their pizza. When we walked…

Mama Mia’s Pizzeria

Mama Mia’s Pizzeria is yet another location in Erie that I had never been to … until last night. I wouldn’t be able to count the times I have driven past 5154 Peach St. and never stopped.  I made my way up there around 7 p.m. with my normal eating crew and took a seat at…

Papa Joe’s

You have got to break away from the norm sometime. When I want a good sandwich or sub, Papa Joe’s at 3826 West Ridge Rd. is one of the first places I go.  All the times I have been there, I have never sampled their pizza.  Being Memorial Day, they were closed last night so…

3 Chances

This week was a very close poll.  In the closing minutes, 3 Chances won by just a single vote. I made my way down to 708 Payne Ave. around 9 last night and it was packed.  Monday night is dart night, so it was full of teams eating, drinking, and playing darts.  My friends and…

Sabo’s really was a surprise to me. I had never heard of it, let alone tried it, before this week. I didn’t foresee it being picked, but I am glad that it was. This was another week I decided to eat during the day. I found a copy of their menu online, and my eyes…

John’s Wildwood Pizzeria

After nearly seven years of living in Erie, I finally made it down to Edinboro to try John’s Wildwood pizza. We got on the road around 6 o’clock.  The drive down on Route 99 is a nice one and takes you straight to John’s.  Since school is no longer session, it was pretty dead when…

After two times on the weekly poll for wings, the Avonia Tavern finally won in the poll for pizza. A friend and I made our way out there around 7 last night. It is only about a 10- or 15-minute drive from downtown to 7321 West Lake Road. The parking lot was packed when we…

Pizzi Cafe

This week was another close one, with the top location winning by only three votes. Just over the state line in Ohio is The Pizzi Café. With the weather being so nice, the half-hour drive there felt like nothing. My friend Michelle and I left Erie around 5:30 last night and found our way to…

Pizza in Review…

   July 13, 2010 5:18 pm    2

Eight weeks of chicken wings felt like it took forever. Eight weeks of pizza felt like it never happened. Pizza is not something Erie is really KNOWN for, and this two-month tour really exposed me to new places. All of the locations I visited for pizza were new to me. With help from your suggestions…
